New You Anti-Aging Tip: Add lemon juice to your water every morning for an extra anti-oxidant boost.

Get your juices flowing each morning by squeezing a wedge of lemon into an eight-ounce glass of water. Besides cleansing the liver, lemon water is a great source of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, which helps boost our abilities to fight free radicals. Free radicals can hurt and damage cell membranes, leading to inflammation in the body and accelerated aging. Lemon water is also effective at dissolving uric acid (often the cause of pain and inflammation in joints) and other poisons in the body, and is a very effective way to help prevent kidney stones in men.
